Ensemble Theatre Company (ETC) will present Curtain Up, a fundraising event featuring a dinner and live performance by actor Linda Purl (“Tenderly: The Rosemary Clooney Story”) and a silent auction, 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21 at the Santa Barbara Club, 1105 Chapala St.
All proceeds support ETC’s mission to present professional quality theater in Santa Barbara.
Silent auction items include a three-night stay at the Manhattan Club Penthouse in New York City, including two Broadway shows and dinner vouchers for two NYC restaurants; a Hermosa Beach getaway for two at a condo on the Strand; an overnight stay at the El Encanto Hotel in Santa Barbara; an empanadas cooking class for six at the winner’s home; a collection of 29 wines from the cellars of ETC board members; and a new artwork by Ruth Ellen Hoag.
Those who can’t attend the event in person can still bid on auction items and buy unique experiences, including an architectural tour of downtown Santa Barbara led by expert Paul Longanbach; or attend a performance/reading with Meredith Baxter and a special guest in a Hope Ranch home.
